Starring in this week's edition of "Politician's Foot Meets Politician's Mouth," we have U.S. Senate candidate and former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland. While seemingly trying to talk about the importance of the Supreme Court and this election during a speech this week, Strickland basically cheered the timing of Justice Antonin Scalia's death.
"I mean, the death of Scalia saved labor from a terrible decision," Strickland said. "And I don't wish anyone ill, but it happened at a good time."
